About the Author
George Spearing was born and educated in the UK, spending two years as a cadet at the shore based naval training school HMS Conway before going to sea at age sixteen.
Emigrating to New Zealand six years later, he worked at a variety of jobs before joining the New Zealand Fire Service in which he served for twenty seven years in the Auckland Brigade, retiring with the rank of Station Officer. He now lives in Oamaru, South Island, NZ. 'Dances With Marmots' is his first full length book. He has had several outdoor magazine articles published plus a fictional short story published in Air New Zealand's flight magazine.
George continues his adventures and has since crewed on a 40ft yacht to New Caledonia and Australia, hiked the length of New Zealand's North Island and has also recently walked the length of Great Britain.

I recommend this book, his point of view will make you smile.
The nice thing about this book is even if you are not a hiker, the author being a New Zealander adds facets of interest to the book because he is new to hiking and new to the United States. His comments about Americans and their land are very amusing.
I initially caught sight of this book online, where the first two chapters were published, and they mentioned Warner Springs, CA. I live near there, and had to laugh out loud at an incident he told of an encounter with a local at a little country bar, the Log Cabin. I bought the book at Amazon.
Spearling's humor carried through in the book, I enjoyed it and passed it on to family members who enjoy hiking and a good story too.
Still a great read if you have or ever want to through hike the PCT.
